How to change balloon fonts all at once?

Legend
Legend

I've tried SmartSelect, but it's not consistent if it will pick all my balloons. Seems someone changed some of the fonts, and balloon sizes, not all, so I'm trying to fix them to all be the same font/size, on numerous sheets.

 

I'm probably unaware of another way to fix this, that's why I lean on you folks............

Smart Select should be your best bet.  are you sure you only have element type selected and not other limiting options?

I have only element type chosen. If I have fixed all of them, then I get the options to change size and fonts. If I have NOT fixed them, it selects them all, but doesn't open the option bar to change anything.

 

Can you confirm on your end? A draft with half a dozen ballooons, take two of those balloons, and change the font. Do you still get the option to fix them all with Smart Select? I've had it give me the option bar a couple times, but it doesn't change all the fonts. It's really weird, not much consistency to it on my end.

Hi @Trikefreak


I anyway would suggest to defibe a Format Style (what should exist so far) and redefine the elements to that style rather than change them manualy

Be sure you are using the Edit Properties Tool Button on the Menu Bar and not RMB shortcut to Properties. 

 

As the RMB on an item supersedes the select set and only edits the single item

 

the Edit Properties Tool Button edits the entire select set.

Ahhhh, edit properties seems to have fixed all fonts on the page.

 

Now if I can change all the height/size of the balloons at one time.........
